Lush Library Presents | Mark Constantine on Quotations.
Quotations are all around us and quoting others is as old as civilisation. So…why do we quote? Benjamin Disraeli said: ‘The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation’ If this is true, then quotations are often used to connect us with the insight and perception of those from the past in order to help us understand the present. For Mark it’s about association: ‘When you’re selecting quotes from someone, you’re picking out ‘THE’ moment when they did manage to exactly express their feelings and that had resonance with you.” In this programme, Andrew Paine talks with Mark about the motivation behind collecting and sharing quotes from Poets, Emperors, Princes, Philosophers and a certain Star Ship Captain and how they have inspired, stimulated and helped navigate his journey across the business world and in his personal life.
